Are you planning on using loyalty points for the sale of this one? I hope not as all our group are going to this one for the last away of the season outside London (apart from Everton, of course) and the loyalty scheme makes it a nightmare to get tickets together.

No, I don't think so. It's a crucial game but not a glamourous one.

2173.

We can get more but have to pay for them if we sell them or not. I think that 2173 will be enough.

I think the demand for this might surprise you, Steve. Presumably, will it initially be a limit of one per season ticket holder?

Not sure if we will limit it.

Recent experiences with Swansea and Sunderland suggest that we don't need to be so cautious.

However I appreciate that this is a Saturday game that's not too difficult to get to.

Want to go to either this or that one - but depends on dates.

Mid April is most likely (see Everton away thread)

Any news on the steam train express or was that just too difficult to arrange?

Unfortunately it did prove too difficult. Jeremy will try again next season.

How many tickets per person?

I think we could definitely increase the allocation to around 3000. With 2 very northern games before it being expensive in travel and 2 cat A away games being hard to get tickets for, this will be a popular away day as many can't go to any of those 4 games.

32 for an adult and a kid is great value - a real day out for my 5yr old, tho i fear journey home might well result in him being asleep for most of it!

There's 16-21 on the box office, can you do that same Family scheme with those tickets? (like 1 adult + 1 teen ticket)

We'll see how strong demand is and open sales up once it becomes clear that there are enough tickets to go round for season ticket holders and members.

It's not our scheme it's Cardiff's and I believe that the deal is 32 for one adult and one U16 only. They set the rules on this.

Officially you both have to be members but Mandy has agreed that it is OK for an adult member to bring a child non-member. If box office staff are not aware please ask them to check with her.

Treat your mate to a membership, or go dutch with him on one. You can then buy two together on Friday.

I don't understand why any Palace supporter, anywhere in the world, wouldn't buy a membership.

Be part of the club, buy a membership.

Sorted for me and the lad. 32 :p Just a shame that West Ham are so extortionate. For every good deal from the likes of WBA & Cardiff there are rip offs like Abramovich & the dildo brothers just to keep you honest.

I can't seem to do the above online. It will only let me have the adult family ticket and bring no family! Do I need to ring the box office to get this deal?

But I thought their stadium holds 28,000. This means we should get 2,800 no?

Yes we could have insisted on 2800 but we would have had to commit to buying them all even if they hadn't sold. Having had our fingers burnt with Man Utd and Swansea, re calculated that this was a risk.

On the other hand we have committed to paying for all 3000 tickets to West Ham.

Steve, can't purchase for Cardiff unless I can use the coach, I spent two lengthy spells waiting on the phone yesterday and was told that they were waiting to confirm a 4th coach as the original 3 were full, I didn't get my answer by the end of the day and sent an email but as yet haven't had a reply.

Once I know for sure, then I can book.

Thanks in advance

Yikes, I wish I had read this thread before buying online. I could only buy 30 tickets for adults and kids online so have spent 90 instead of 47 (32 (1 Adult 1 child) and 15 for the extra child)

Steve, can I sort this out at the box office?

What would be good,,,,and ive banged on about this for years, would be for the club/box office to put a daily update on the website so we all know exactly how many tickets are still available for matches, especially away games.
